the tea party for dogmattic money. paul krugman wrote . . . >> jennifer: okay. i love paul krugman but on this one i have to strongly disagree. let's take a look at what progressives actually got. first democrats got tax increases for the wealthiest americans. now that alone is a big deal because before this meal -- this meal -- before this deal lawmakers had not voted for a tax increase in two full decades. lawmakers on either side. the deal raises taxes on people making over $400,000 a year right? so $400,000 a year your taxes go up to 39.6%. all right. that by the way is a permanent change. now, wealthy investors are not going to be ability to wiggle out of paying their fair share because capitol gains taxes they go up to 20%. not by 20%, but to 20% from 15%. the estate tax which is a tax on inheritance, the estate tax goes up to 40% from 35%. this deal also impacts those who are make a little less than $400,000 but still less than the average american people making between 250 and $400,000 a year won't be able to take as many deductions in the tax code. they

and nobel prize winning economist paul krugman says the president should be ready to mint that coin. in theory the treasury would mint the trillion-dollar coin and then walk it over to the federal reserve for deposit, so the government can pay its bills. oops. is it legal? technically the treasury doesn't need the permission of congress to mint platinum coins, but does it make economic sense? >> this whole coin business doesn't deal with the debt and deficit issue and it does not make it go away. >> my name is david greenstein and i'm a professional numismatist. >> easy for you to say. >> reporter: we visited a coin dealer to figure out how big it would need to be. >> solid platinum 747 aircraft to have $1 trillion worth of platinum. >> reporter: some suggest it's a political ploy. >> we should have known a coin was obama's solution to everything. it was right there in his slogan, "change." >> reporter: the next big political battle will most certainly be whose face gets to be on it. obama? boehner? or maybe bieber. kevin tibbles, nbc news, chicago. >>> that is our broadcast on a tu

krugman over the trillion dollar coin. paul krugman actually surprised us after coming out in support of the idea of minting the trillion dollar coin. jon stewart slammed him for it and said it was a dumb thing for a nobel prize winning economist to do. and then paul krugman slammed back at jon stewart. jon stewart last night i think has the final word on this trillion dollar coin which is not going to happen. here was jon stewart. >> as we most, bit we do, whether of the fully fleshed out or by drive by variety. there are always various counter arguments of language and thought which can be cited as evidence of this show's inherent fairness or igance. so i stand by our research on the topic with due diligence and my ignorant conclusion that a trillion dollar coin minted to allow the president to circumvent the debt ceiling however arbitrary that might be is a stupid [ bleep ] idea. all right.

guys with us here today. thank you so much. steve rattner, this time yesterday we had paul krugman on the show. you actually said in an e-mail talking about your concerns krugman suggested we don't have to worry about long term debt so much, deficits, long term debt number 5, maybe number 6 on the list. you took exception to it and said denying the coming debt was like being a climate change denier. >> i think actually mika started that analogy and paul krugman basically said the opposite. to me, being a debt denier is the same thing as being a climate change denier. we're putting tons of carbon in our atmosphere we have to deal with and incurring billions of debt everyday we have to deal with. they're the same problems. do you recognize they're problems and deal with them or sit and let them fester until something bad happens. >> what do you say about what paul krugman says, it's a problem but it won't be a problem until 20 years from now and let's not deal with the problem. >> in the order of magnitude we know the problem will be worse. about 60 trillion dollars of unfunded liabi
